  Yesterday (song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although written solely by McCartney, the song was credited to both himself and John Lennon as "Lennon/McCartney", as were all Beatles songs written by either of the pair (although they were sometimes credited in the opposite order as "McCartney/Lennon").
McCartney originally claimed he had written "Yesterday" during the Beatles' tour of France in 1964; however, the song was not released until the summer of 1965.
The tonic key of the song is F major (although, since McCartney tuned his guitar down a whole step, he was playing the chords as if it were in G), where the song begins before veering off into the relative minor key of D minor.

Songs of unions, churches, and political movements and parties tend to be songs of minorities to convince themselves and others of their rightness.
However engineered their popularity may be, popular songs become the background to the lives of the greater number of people, creating an illusion of oneness around a theme.

 Yesterday by The Beatles Songfacts
For years, it was also the song with the most radio plays, but in 1999 BMI music publishing reported that "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" had passed it.
The Beatles couldn't (at that time) control what Capitol did with their songs in the U.S., so it was released as a single in America, but not anywhere else in the world.
Yes, strings were used in rock songs before this, but never in the way it is used in "Yesterday." It paved the way for the Beatles future experimentation and I must give much credit to George Martin.

 Younger Than Yesterday
The second is "Renaissance Fair," a song that recaptures those heady days when the sight of a bunch of addle-pated Tolkien addicts jousting, strumming lutes, and gnawing on greasy shanks of beef did not immediately inspire howls of derisive laughter.
Aside from his collaborations with Hillman and Crosby, the only McGuinn song is "CTA-102." Co-written with his friend Bob Hippard, the song is about an object in space that was briefly thought to have been an alien civilization sending radio transmissions to earth.
The song was a regular part of their live set during this phase of the Byrds, and gives some idea of the limitations of the band's live act during the first few line-ups.

The best songs on the disc are the three masterminded by the Matrix, the same production team that oversaw Avril Lavigne's hit disc and they give the lissome actress’s singing some attitude and grit, like on the infectious and spectacularly bratty "So Yesterday," and the cleverly conceived "Math," complete with heavy metal guitar riffs.
A few of the songs are a little cheesy and/or shallow, and some parts are a bit overproduced, but besides that this is a very strong and enjoyable album.
My two favorite songs are "Come Clean" (which has a wonderful message about grace and new beginnings, which is completely lost in the music video of the song, which cheapens it by making it about waiting for some guy to come) and "Love Just Is" (cheesy lyrics, but very beautiful melody).

The ballad "Forever" was another song I remember during my 80's days, from the Vox Humana album, and it has a characteristic guitar snarl that takes it to power ballad territory in the chorus, courtesy of Toto's Steve Lukather.
